Audiobook Builder 1.5

by Michael Alderete on 5/30/2011 · 1 comment

My recommended solution for creating digital audiobooks from CDs, Audiobook Builder, has recently been updated, and comes with a new feature for renaming the chapters in an audiobook:

Rename Chapters feature

I don’t know that I’d want to use this on every book, but for those without interesting or meaningful chapter names (or if you’re just not as anal retentive as I am), this can be a nice time savings to make your chapter titles look neat and regular. This is especially useful if you’re creating a separate track for every chapter, and want to keep chapters in the right order. (I recommend a different approach, but it’s up to you.)

Other new features include additional metadata support, something that’s very welcome. All in all, a great update — and free to registered users!

I how I wish itunes/ipods weren’t such a giant clusterf*ck of a program/system when dealing with audiobooks. Books sorted by title, alphabetically? Seriously? Who doesn’t know books should be sorted by “track” 1, 2, 3 not “title” A B C. This is common sense, everyone on earth knows this… every file system knows this too, except Apple. When I read a book I don’t look for the page with an “A” as the first letter on the page, and read all those pages in the book first, then go to B, etc. Can’t they read the sheer hundred of thousands of complaints and fix this? The apple way is let’s buy another program to overcome the limitations of this program. Or let’s spend days tagging things in itunes, that will be lost if the program looses it’s settings/HDD crash/ etc since it’s not writing that these mp3s are books to the id3 tags of the file itself. What a unbelievable asinine problem that should never have existed in the first place. “Let’s reinvent the wheel - to a square!”
